Find it in NoveList: Wordless books

Here at NoveList, those of us who work with juvenile materials are big fans of kidlit blogger Betsy Bird. When she mentioned meeting a Fuse #8 fan who was in search of a list of wordless books, our ears perked up.

As a matter of fact, NoveList maintains a Recommended Reads list of wordless books. Heck, our catalogers even apply a searchable genre to all wordless books, so that librarians can find them easily! Sounds like we better spread the news!

After all, wordless books can be enjoyed by language learners, visual learners, pre-literate kids, curious adults -- basically anyone who enjoys poring over pictures. Why not create a display around our print-and-post flyer and give your wordless books a shout-out?

Need that Recommended Reads list we mentioned? Find it by cutting and pasting this search into NoveList: UI 445194.

Want to do your own searching?

Try the genre heading Stories Without Words by cutting and pasting this field code search: GN Stories without words. Refine your searching even further by incorporating field codes for reading level, appeal terms, and more. Need a refresher on using field codes to search NoveList, or seeing them for the first time and wondering “???” Watch a video tutorial on using these handy little codes and download the search strategy.

Psst! The info you read here was originally featured in an issue of KidLit Connection, one of the email lists sent monthly from the NoveList Book Squad.

Autumn Winters, Lindsey Dunn, and Rebecca Honeycutt are all Readers' Advisory Librarians at NoveList.
